What do we (really) know about poverty? – Free Online Webinar

As the world tackles the ambitious challenges of the SDGs, seeking to end poverty in all its forms by 2030, the questions of how we measure poverty & how we understand it have never been more pressing

As the world tackles the ambitious SDGs challenge to end poverty in all its forms by 2030, the questions of how we measure poverty and how we understand what poverty is have never been more pressing.

Oxford University & ATD run a multi-year research project to develop new approaches to measuring poverty, with the goal of informing how we understand poverty and how we design effective policies to fight poverty in the future. Conducting research in 6 countries on 5 continents, bringing together academics, people living in poverty, and practitioners is a significant challenge.

What does it mean to include the knowledge of people in poverty in research work to end poverty? How should we build our research processes to make that possible? What are the implications of this kind of research for both academic research and public policy attempts to address poverty?

Poverty cannot be truly understood without the input of those who live it and work alongside it every day.
